"My hope is that the young readers’ edition of Becoming can serve as a conversation starter for you," Obama (57) wrote on Instagram.

She continued: "Maybe it’ll open up new dialogues with your children or grandchildren. Maybe you can use it as an opportunity to begin a book club with the young people you know or use it as an excuse to invite them into your existing book club."

The young readers' edition will be released in the US on March 2.

The new version includes an introduction for children written by the former First Lady herself, according to the book's website.
